Review Quotes




Frankenslime:

This title is great for group read-alouds or independent reading. The story is entertaining, and kids are sure to get a kick out of the detailed illustrations... Highly recommended for all picture book collections. -- School Library Journal, starred review

'With its lively, science-y text and pore-over-able cartoony illustrations (including LOL-worthy endpapers), this picture book, with its welcome brown-skinned-science-girl protagonist, will stick with readers. --
The Horn Book

Victoria is a wonderful, inquisitive protagonist of color with a warm heart, and three of her amazing slime recipes are appended. -- Booklist

Horror movie-flavored suspense keeps readers on the edge of their seats, and young scientists will appreciate the slime recipes included in the back matter. --Publishers Weekly
